[Abstract] Objective To investigate the impact of compressed sensing (CS) technology on breast enhanced-T1 high resolution isotropic volume excitation imaging quality and scan time, and to optimize isotropic e-THRIVE sequence.Materials and Methods A total of 43 patients isotropic DCE-MRI examination in our hospital were prospectively included, which type of time signal intensity curve of tumor was platform type. On the basis of T1 high resolution isotropic volume excitation (e-THRIVE), different acceleration factors (AF) [sensitivity encoding (SENSE) AF=4, CS AF=4, CS AF=5, CS AF=6, CS AF=7] were used with 3.0 T MRI equipment. The sequence optimization was carried out on the delayed e-THRIVE sequence. Subjective evaluation and objective measurements of the images were performed by two observers. The image signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) and relative contrast (RC) were calculated. Friedman test were used to analyze the SNR, CNR, RC and subjective scores of images between different groups. P<0.05 was that the difference was statistically significant, if the difference was statistically significant, follow-up multiple comparison.Results The objective and subjective scores were consistent between the two observers, and there were significant differences in SNRfibroglandular, CNRfibroglandular, SNRlesion, CNRlesion and subjective scores among different AF (P<0.05). There were no significant differences in RCfibroglandulars-to-lesion, RClesion-to-muscle and RCfibroglandulars-to-muscle among different AF (P>0.05). The results of pairwise comparison showed that SNRfibroglandulars, CNRfibroglandulars, SNRlesion, CNRlesion and subjective scores of sense AF=4, CS AF=4 and CS AF=5 images were higher than those of CS AF=6 and CS AF=7 images (P<0.05).Conclusions During clinical practice, in consideration scanning time and image quality, the CS AF=5 is recommended for breast e-THRIVE sequence, which saves 26.7% of scanning time compared with conventional parallel acquisition.
